A New Yorker filed a class action lawsuit in the Eastern District Court of New York on Monday, claiming that Taco Bell is misleading customers by offering dishes like its Crunchwraps, with half the filling shown in its advertisements. Business Insider reports that the inciting incident took place in September 2022, at a Ridgewood, Queens Taco Bell, where the defendant Frank Siragusa claimed he overpaid for a Mexican Pizza that did not match photos. According to the publication, the lawsuit hopes to win $5 million for affected New Yorkers who have been similarly duped.

“Taco Bell’s actions are especially concerning now that inflation, food, and meat prices are very high and many consumers, especially lower income consumers, are struggling financially,” the attorney for Siragusa, stated in the suit.
